Justin11 reacted to DC in Ways to cool off in the summer heat
Summer has officially begun. So what are your favorite ways to cool off in the heat? Personally I enjoy swimming, cold water, and ice cream. Those are typically the most effective. I tend to go to the theatre, museums, and sports events a lot during the summer. Those indoor activities really make life more bearable during the hot summer hots.

Justin11 got a reaction from Clasher in When did you start your Fortnite journey?
Yeah, it's been discussed severally here. As for those who keeps on investing ridiculously around Fortnite, that's their choice but I'll simply say, the choice isn't normal. Because, it is just like throwing away money when it should be utilized in solving other gaming needs.
Justin11 reacted to Clasher in When did you start your Fortnite journey?
That's true mate, I only spent about $10 or less on fortnite and the price got to this value because I got interested in the Fortnite X Marvel zero war comic book and it comes with a digital to unlock the spider Man zero outfit with it as well and I bought the comic for $5.99.
Justin11 reacted to killamch89 in Which players will make your dream Five-Aside team?
Buffon (GK) Thuram (CB) Ronaldinho (CAM) Zidane (CAM) Henry (CF)
Justin11 reacted to killamch89 in What platform are you using?
Lenovo has some very good gaming laptops so I'm not sure how you came to that conclusion. It's just that their products tend to be a tad overpriced - not as bad as Razer or Alienware but there's a bit of a premium to be paid for their best products.
Justin11 got a reaction from Family sedan in Would you buy any old console today?
Thanks for the clarification you've carried out on both games. I never played WRC games nor British rally games, I'm just concentrated on GT 7 at the moment and few others. I love GT due to the Mod option, you purchase mod, rebrand your vehicle, upgrade vehicle and enjoy the beauty of racing game.

Watching the Red Wings win the cup in 2008. I was elated seeing that. We haven't taken the cup since then, and we lost a LOT of our best players. Some due to retirement, others due to injury. We even traded a couple of our best, which still pisses me off.
Also the first game I went to was a win for us. It was in the final minutes of the game and we were down by two. But we pulled it out and won.
The second game I went to was on my birthday, and we won that one.
So I've had some good moments with my team.
Justin11 reacted to Yaramaki in Did you ever buy a game and resell it before ever playing it?
It's still useless because digital games are tied to your online account, unless you would be okay to have a complete stranger have access to your online account they can't do jack shit with the digital games installed on a console.
Hmm unless you use it as frisbee or simulair actions and use your disc the normal way like a normal human being, it's damn near impossible to scratch up a blu-ray disc. Also i never understood how people can be so careless with their belongings like how can a disc be scratched up so badly while all you have to do is keep it inside the case and it's will be fine for years to come.

Troy Deeney's goal vs leicester that got Watford promoted to the Premier League in the last minute after Leicester missed a penalty at the other end Christiano Ronaldo's overhead kick vs Juventus at Juventus stadium and the whole crowd got up and cheered for Ronaldo. It was truly awesome. Aaron Ramsey's long range goal with his weak foot vs Galatasaray at Galatasaray's stadium and the crowd cheered for him.
Justin11 reacted to killamch89 in Define your saddest moment watching your favorite sports game?
Honestly, it was the Denmark match at the Euros last year when Ericksen collapsed on the field and nearly died, It was shocking - I'm glad he survived.
Justin11 reacted to Yaramaki in Do you ever take time out to clean your video games?
He probably had zero clue what he was talking about but justin11 is right. The purple discs that a lot of the earlier ps2 games came on were cd-roms, sony ditched the format for the dvd rom format pretty early on as a couple of models have problems reading the purple discs so that may be the reason, from experience whenever i booted up a purple disc my ps2 would make a lot of noise, i've heard some slim models don't read them at all.
Their was an official hard drive released for the ps2 , i have one somewhere but never used it so i can't really say much about it.
Then their is also this funky ps2/digital recorder hybrid with a 250gb hdd called the Psx only released in japan. Quite an interesting piece of playstation history if you ask me. The only problem is finding a working one is a challenge these days.
But damn to stay on topic how long can you get a thread going about cleaning your consoles it's already at 9 fucking pages. Guess i'll just say how i do it then, the consoles i have hooked up i dust off once a week and that is more then enough imo, all my retro games are either in special box protectors or resealable dvd/blu-ray baggies to prevent wear and tear plus they are so much easier to dust off. All my consoles i don't use are in their original boxes, stashed away in various closets away mostly.

Justin11 reacted to Shagger in If you were offered $1 million to never play your favorite game again?
So, in other words you post should have read like this... right?
The fact it took a whole paragraph to explain what it was you were trying to say says it all.
Justin11 reacted to Yaramaki in What’s the one material possession you would run into a burning building to save?
Great thread when i first tought about it hell i'll just grab my rarest game or console while i probably don't want to fork out the money to buy them again they can be replaced if i wanted.
Obviously i should go for something i can't replace, I always tought it was ugly as fuck but i've come to appreciate it more and more over the years this print used to belong to one of my best childhood friends who passed away from leukemia, i think it's been 9 years now. He used to be really into Pushead artwork and this print was one of his prized possesions, two weeks before he passed away he gave me this to remember him by, the cool thing about it that i never knew that he hid a farewell letter inside the back of the frame where he thanked me for being such a good friend and whatnot, i only found out about the letter a couple of years ago.
Anyway sorry if it's nsfw, you know you should be working instead of browsing the internet.
Justin11 reacted to killamch89 in Do you think the money involved in soccer is driving the real entertainment away?
Honestly you do have a point but there isn't anything that can be done about - unless fans start to really protest and push back against the greed in football.
Justin11 reacted to Shagger in Tomb Raider Reloaded
I'm still having difficulty understanding what you're trying to say because that is barley better than other post. I have went back and re-read both posts, came back to this post to make alterations, read you posts again, repeat, several times and I'm still not sure what it is you're trying to say.
Why do you say "Lara acted a movie"? I'm going to assume you meant "Lara acted in a movie", but surely not as Lara is the character, not the actor and I find it hard to believe anyone could make that mistake. But then, judging buy you say in your first post;
It also looks like you think Lara Croft is the actor, but again, surely not! My own dibelief that somebody could make that mistake is at least part of the reasonwhy I found the post so difficult to understand. so I have to admit, that's on me. Somebody thinking Lara is the actor just doesn't register easily with me. However, then your second post seems to reaffirm that. I think (and sincerely hope) it's the odd chance or words you have used that's giving that impression, but on the odd chance you do believe Lara is the actor, here's the basics.
Lara Croft didn't "act" in anything, she's the character. Tomb Raider always was, and primarily still is, a video game before the movie adaptations were made. The first two films made based of the early Tomb Raider games starred Angelina Jolie in 2001 then 2003, then more recently in 2018 there was a new Tomb Raider movie based off the rebooted video game series starring Alicia Vikander. In the games Lara Croft has been voiced acted by serval different actresses, most recently Rachel Appleton.
With that out of way, what is the "Tomb Raider video game show"? Are you trying to refence the one of of the movies (if so, what one, there's three of them), one of the games (There 15 of them in my steam library alone, and I know there's more, especially if you include the mobile games) or are you refencing some TV show I don't know about? It's all so vague and grammatically confusing. When its a franchise like this, you have to specify what movie and what games you're talking about because there's so many of them. Some of these games even have ports on modern mobile devices, so have to be precise, otherwise it is impossible to understand what it is your saying even without the grammatical problems. If you don't know, then you probably should not have made the comment in the first place. You played your first Tomb Raider game, whatever game it was, on mobile, then played played a Tomb Raiser game on console, I got that, but again with this franchise you have to be specific and say what games otherwise it's impossible for the one reading it to have a point of reference. Because some of these games have posts on both, it could even have been the same game both times, that's how vague you post was. There are no recognisable points of reference anywhere in anything that you posted.
As far as I can tell, you have either got really mixed up with who and what Lara Croft is, flat don't know what games you were even playing (Which again brings up the question why you posted at all) or you have use some really weird wording and grammar that, along with the lack of points of reference, has drowned what you were trying to say. Whatever the case may be, I do know I've wasted enough of my time on this.
Justin11 reacted to Shagger in Ever get bored with your controller?
What has any of this got to do with the subject? You want to talk about the price of old consoles, talk about the tice of old consoles on an appropriate thread. Why is sticking to thread's topic impossible for you lot? I'm getting sick of this.
Justin11 reacted to Shagger in Fast car racing games: F1 2021 and F1 2022
Weirdly enough, right after typing that I did actually find a story on Planet F1 that is does connect the real sport with games in a rather interesting way. Former F1 World Champion Damon Hill has theorised that current McLaren driver Daniel Riccardo may be struggling the way he is right rough now because of his younger rival's exposure and close involvement with video games and racing E-Sports. There are several drivers, like defending World Champion Max Verstappen and Riccardo's team mate Lando Norris, frequently play the games, spend a lot of time on sim's and compete in racing E-Sports.
After Michal Schumacher, drivers really needed to start young in karting to develop into the F1 talent we seen today. Michel's path to Formula 1 was revolutionary at the time and set the trend for how the F1 talent of today get into the sport. While success in Karting and lower league open cockpit racings is still very important now, It does sound plausible to me that this new generation of drivers may be gaining an edge with E-Sports, sim' racing and video games that older drivers have not.
